In the midst of a confrontation with Russia, Germany has stated that it will give Ukraine with 1,000 anti-tank weaponry and 500 stinger missiles.

“The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a watershed moment. It is our responsibility to do all possible to assist Ukraine in defending itself against Putin’s invading troops “Olaf Scholz, the German Chancellor, stated. The Netherlands has also declared that anti-tank weapons will be sent to Ukraine.

The news: Germany also agreed on limiting Moscow’s access to the SWIFT interbank system and sanctioning arms transfers to Kyiv in a policy U-turn.

What they said: “The invasion of Ukraine by Russia is a watershed moment in history. It jeopardises the postwar order as a whole “As his administration approved the supply of a large batch of lethal weapons to Ukraine, Chancellor Olaf Scholz remarked.

  • “It is our obligation in this crisis to defend Ukraine to the best of our capacity in its defence against Vladimir Putin’s invading force,” Scholz said, adding that Germany “stands closely by Ukraine’s side.”

In addition: Berlin is opening up its Bundeswehr shop, promising to provide 1,000 anti-tank weaponry and 500 “Stinger” class surface-to-air missiles to Ukraine, reversing its long-standing policy of barring weapons transfers to conflict zones.

  • The anti-tank launchers had been purchased by the Netherlands from Berlin, and the Hague had therefore required Germany’s green light to hand them to Kyiv.
  • On Saturday, it also finalised the delivery of 400 anti-tank missile launchers to Ukraine via the Netherlands.
  • Similarly, an Estonian request for the transfer to Ukraine of eight outdated Howitzers purchased from ex-communist East Germany was approved after a weeks-long delay.

Aside from the armaments, Ukraine will receive 14 armored vehicles that will “function for the security of personnel, maybe for evacuation purposes,” according to a government source.
